Stuart Wright is the man behind Bear Bones bikepacking and the near legendary Welsh Ride Thing. When not riding or plotting routes incorporating as many long forgotten and largely unrideable tracks as possible, he can usually be found producing light weight goodies in his workshop in the Cambrian mountains.
